Vandy74...good to hear from you.  Wow, your niece is graduating!  How time flies...thought in my mind she was a junior.  If her classmate and good friend from Naples Florida? is also crossing the stage on Sunday, I have a favor to ask of you.  In case that friend’s grandfather..Bob Landon’62..is introduced, please say hi to him for me :).  He was a frat brother and a roommate.  We sometimes double dated.  Very successful Harvard educated estate lawyer, I recall.  Going over the Holyoke notch/gap in his two seat convertible car with dates was a challenge...like “stuffing a telephone booth” ;D
There maybe a chance that you could meet the author of “Foxtrot”...one of your favorite authors. Amherst is preparing the Quad for outdoor graduation today.

amh63,

Yes it's hard to believe my niece is about to graduate college.  It seems like yesterday she was graduating high school.  I hope it doesn't rain and send the ceremony indoors.  Panther basketball fans seldom feel comfortable in LeFrak.  I'll certainly give Bob Landon your regards if I find him.  The two of you and your dates shooting the gap in his two seat convertible?  Where there's a will...... ;D 8-)  I believe Bill Amends' son is a class behind but I'll certainly check to make sure.

That's a tough bracket Amherst is in.  Good luck taking down the Cardinals.  I'm glad you'll be in Gettysburg to root on the LJs.  Brother Dick remembers meeting you there.

Don't believe I will make the games this weekend. I thought about being there on Saturday (after my son's lax came about 45 minutes away), but not sure with the weather it is worth the hassle. I can't be there Sunday as I will be at Navy as the PA announcer for the D1 men's lacrosse quarterfinals.


Just so long as your reservations are set for Salem the following weekend Dave.  Where does your son play?

Have been chatting with Vandy74, one of the good guys. Says you are also a good guy and knowledgable in women's lacrosse. I plan on getting on this board in the future. Look forward to exchanging thoughts with you. Mount Union isn't up to your level yet, but we're working on it. Have a good summer. Chat with you later.

My reservations are set - got them taken care of weeks ago. :)

My son plays in a U8 (kind of) rec league of sorts. Sadly, they like to make things as much "travel" as they can even at his age, so he barely plays peers in his area. The "tournament" is scheduled for Carroll Community College in Westminster, Md. (south of the town) - about 50 minutes from Gettysburg. However, with the weather this week - i would be SHOCKED if they are playing. Wife told me they are looking into other field options (turf), but I am not holding my breathe. I would love to mention McDaniel, Stevenson, and others to them ... but I am also beyond frustrated with this group. We have plans (along with other friends) to move to a different program next year.

That said... my son scored 4 of his teams 6 goals in the game last week. He also blocked one of his teammate's shots (while tied 6-6) while trying to make clear to his teammate he was open for a pass. Shot went right off his helmet as he ended up standing right in front of the goal on the crease line. SMH I still haven't looked to see if I have a picture of it. LOL

Then here is "PolarCat". He enjoyed attacking the Mount Union program and me. He even mentioned me in a diragatory (sic) manner just a few weeks back. Kind of takes the fun out of posting. Don't know what his problem is, but, as you probably noticed, I quit posting on this board.

Gosh, I hope you filed a Hurt Feelings Report over that one.  Since the post in question was on another board, I thought I should set the record straight.  You had made a really derogatory comment about the NESCAC on the NESCAC Football board, and I called you out on it.  Remember what you said?


Good to see you speaking up on the comments from the NESCAC crowd. They sure talk a great story for someone that won't play outside their conference. Mount Union has had some tough games with East Region teams. Standout QB's, good discipline and good coaching. NESCAC fans live in a world of make believe. Play some games against the LL and the E8. Then we can all see how great you are.

I'm fairly certain I'll hear from some NESCAC people, but so be it! On the other hand, maybe I won't. Their arms may be sore from patting themselves on their back.

By the way, I don't think anyone has really missed the fact that you and your hurt feelings have stopped posting here.  I suspect Vandy74 had other folks in mind.
